Excellent tour not to be missed!
Karen_G, Mar 2020
Emma and Maria were both excellent guides and looked after us very well. We sampled local foods with detailed explanations. We heard about the history of the city and saw places and architecture that we might have missed otherwise. Highly recommend you do this tour early on in your visit, it’ll give you ideas for the rest of your trip. Emma also gave us recommendations for the rest of our day including visiting Ana Poli and other places of interest . Thank you for looking after us so well!!
